On This Date in Minnesota History: December 7

December 7, 1925 - Phyllis Lucille Gates, an American secretary and interior decorator best known for her three-year marriage to the actor Rock Hudson, was born in Dawson, Minn., on this date. She met Hudson when she worked as a secretary for influential Hollywood agent Henry Willson, who represented Hudson, Tab Hunter, Rory Calhoun and a string of other young stars.

If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
